Keeping in touch with the weather conditions is essential for most people who want to plan ahead. Luckily, you don't have to turn on the TV on news each time you want to find out what the temperature will be the next day or a couple of hours away, thanks to the fact that there are plenty of software tools ready to help.
Sterjo Weather Forecast is a lightweight and intuitive tool that can display the current weather conditions in your location or anywhere else in the world. Powered by Yahoo!, it collects the most relevant weather-related details, such as humidity, wind and visibility.
View the weather forecast for the next five days
Following a quick setup operation, Sterjo Weather Forecast gets integrated into the systray and opens a menu on right-click, offering options to run at every Windows startup automatically, always start minimized, and switch from portrait to landscape mode.
The main window actually gets minimized to the systray on close, so you can only exit the application from this menu. Based on your computer settings, the utility learns your current location and immediately fetches info from Yahoo! to reveal the current temperature.
Show temp in Celsius or Fahrenheit
It's possible to show the temp in Celsius or Fahrenheit, depending on your preference. Moreover, you can view the weather forecast for the next five days, search for a new location by city, postcode or country, as well as extend the main window to find out the humidity, visibility, wind, what the temperature really feels like, last update time, as well as sunrise and sunset time. Data can be refreshed with the click of a button.
It worked well on Windows 10 in our testing, aside from a error that sometimes popped up on restart, which prevented the tool from getting the current location. This was always resolved with a new restart.
Advanced users are likely to feel disappointed by the lack of a notification system on custom-defined notifications related to weather. Instead, Sterjo Weather Forecast is straightforward and has an attractive interface.
